-handed independent payment advisory board causing medicare spending as a percentage of our economy to skyrocket. the trustees report and the alternative scenario reinforce the need for prompt attention to medicare's severe financial problems. as we will hear from our witnesses, we should continue to push that now is the time to act, as the sooner we make changes to better the program's structure, the less drastic those changes will have to be. my hope is that this hearing will help my colleagues on both sides of the aisle continue to understand the extent of the financial problem that pushes us to work towards bipartisan, commonsense solutions. we cannot wish this problem away. medicare is going broke too quickly, and no amount of positioning for political gain is going to change that fact. the medicare board of trustees urge congress to take prompt legislative action and recognize that the projections in this year's report continue to demonstrate the need for timely and effective action to address medicare's remaining financial challenges. if the trustees don't view the two added years of solv
